Next Week at Witherspoon (August 7-13)

Nassau is invited to join our siblings at Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church (WSPC) for worship and study. Find information below for upcoming events, and contact the WSPC Office for zoom links.



In our charge to “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly,” Nassau is grateful to partner with our siblings at Witherspoon Presbyterian Church. Ongoing Bending the Moral Arc small groups engage in courageous conversations on race and justice facilitated by members of the Nassau & Witherspoon Partnership Team working in partnership. Those leaders pull from a running resource list to ground discussion, and we wanted to share those resources with you here. (updated January 2022)

Dear Parents,

Summer greetings!

We are excited about the coming program year at Nassau Presbyterian Church. This post contains registration and program information for the upcoming year.

REGISTRATION

We ask you to complete a new form each year to ensure we have accurate information on you and your child to ensure your child’s health and safety. If you have multiple children in your family, you will receive a separate registration email for each.

To complete your registration, please:

  • print the registration form that was emailed to you,
  • make changes/additions using the fields on page two,
  • with or without changes, please sign and date page one of the form, and
  • return these two pages to the church office as soon as possible – by Tuesday, September 6 or earlier – to make sure your child’s name appears correctly on our attendance lists

If you have an additional child to register, blank forms are available here (Registration Form – pdf) and in the literature rack outside the church office.

2022 Summer Mission: Loaves & Fishes: Aug. 19 & 20, 2022

…until all are fed

The summer is heating up, and plans for the annual Loaves and Fishes is underway! That means we need bag lunches and cookies to feed approximately 100 guests at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Trenton on Saturday, August 20.

We are again requesting your help in the largest annual mission event of Nassau Presbyterian Church.  More people participate in Loaves and Fishes than any other mission project at NPC.

While we do not need the large group of volunteers to serve the meal in Trenton, we do need lots of volunteers to prepare some things in advance and drop them off at Nassau Church on Friday, August 19, 5:30-7:30PM

 We need 150 packed bag lunches that our guests will take away when they leave.  For the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches please put peanut butter on both pieces of bread – it helps the sandwich last longer since it may be a couple of days between preparing the sandwich and consumption.

We also need 100 individually bagged brownies that will be distributed as the dessert to the hot meal being served. Each brownie should be about 3″ x 4″ in size and about 1″ thick.. This is 12 brownies cut from a 9″ x 13″ pan.

Download a PDF of the instructions or the meatloaf recipe and directions to St. Mary’s Cathedral:

Watch Scott Harmon’s video on how to pack a bagged lunch!


With many hands, we are confident that once again, Nassau Presbyterian Church will show the love of God to our neighbors in need.

Thank you in advance for your assistance,

2022 Summer Mission: School Supplies

Trenton students head back to school – help us provide the supplies they need for success.


Every September the new school year brings excitement and lots of new goodies. This year students will be returning from virtual or hybrid learning during the pandemic to the more familiar routines of the schoolhouse. In any event, the supplies add up. In 2019 the average family spent over $200 per student, just too much for many families in our area.

We are joining with Westminster Presbyterian Church (WPC), our partner church in Trenton, to provide 150 backpacks filled with essentials for local kids.  WPC will distribute the school supplies in partnership with Trenton Music Makers, the Apostalic Church, LALDEF, and Sprout University of the Arts.


Donations will be accepted through Sunday, August 14.

Please bring new backpacks to worship on Sunday mornings and place them in the marked basket in the narthex.

To fill the backpacks, we have found that monetary donations go the farthest so that Nassau can purchase grade-specific school supply packs in bulk. Thank you for giving as you are able to help make sure students in Trenton are better prepared for the academic year ahead.


School supply bundles:

  • Elementary Pack, $24
  • Middle School Pack, $32
  • High School Pack, $45

Monetary donations can be made by check or online. Make checks out to Nassau Presbyterian Church, noting “School Supplies” in the memo line and drop in the collection plate or mail to the church office. Use the button below to donate online, choose “School Supplies” from the drop-down Funds box.

Give Now (link)


Every gift helps better prepare children for the year ahead with needed school supplies and with the knowledge that the wider community is cheering them on. Thank you!
